Work With Me / Review Policy

The Writing Greyhound is a PR-friendly blog and I am always open to exciting new opportunities and collaborations.

I am happy to take review requests and often work with a variety of brands, authors and publishers.

Book Review Policy

The Writing Greyhound operates an honest, unbiased book review policy at all times. I always give my truthful opinion about a book and will write a review for every book I am sent for review purposes, from five-star favourites to one-star disappointments. If you are an author or publisher only looking for positive reviews, we won't make a good fit for one another. Many other book bloggers only share positive reviews of books they have enjoyed reading - The Writing Greyhound is not one of these blogs. However, if you are interested in receiving an honest review of your book, good or bad, please read on.

I am happy to review most genres except the following:

  • Horror
  • Humour
  • Satire
  • Picture books
  • Novellas
  • Religious
  • Steampunk
  • Essays
  • Science fiction
  • Erotica
  • Memoir/biography (except, occasionally, historical)

On the other hand, these are my favourite genres to read and review. If your book falls into one or more of these categories, I am far more likely to accept your request:

  • Young adult (YA)
  • New adult (NA)
  • Urban fantasy
  • Historical

A Handy Guide to The Writing Greyhound's Book Review Ratings

I read and review every book based on its own merits before assigning it a star rating. Here's a quick rundown of what each of my star ratings means:

  • One star - I strongly disliked the book
  • Two stars - I didn't enjoy the book
  • Three stars - I enjoyed the book but it didn't stand out
  • Four stars - I really enjoyed the book
  • Five stars - I loved the book!

Hopefully, this guide will prove helpful to both readers and authors stopping by the blog!

Still Interested?

I also support indie authors and am more than happy to review good-quality self-published books as well as traditionally published novels. Please note that I am highly unlikely to read or review a book from a series unless I have previously read and enjoyed the rest of the series to date.

If you think that your book is a good fit for me, please get in touch with more information. 

Please note - I receive many review requests every day and cannot physically review every book offered to me. If you clearly haven't read my review guidelines or you send me a generic or unnamed request, please don't expect a reply to your message.
